HC Deb 22 April 1971 vol 815 c1342
3. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on his official conference on drugs at Moreton-in-Marsh.

Mr. Sharples

The event last month to which the hon. Member refers was a seminar organised by the Home Office for heads of police drugs squads to study general aspects of the drug problem.

Mr. Dalyell

What did the Department learn from the seminar about the early identification of drug taking among young people?

Mr. Sharples

It was not the purpose of the seminar, part of which I attended myself, to do that. The seminar was concerned with prevention, the importation of drugs and drug trafficking. It was mainly a seminar for drugs officers in police forces.
